COMMENTS

A cevian is a line segment which joins a vertex of a triangle with a point on the opposite side (or its extension).
A nontrivial cevian is one that does not coincide with a side of the triangle.
For all n, the longest nontrivial integral cevian has length n^2.

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 6 because for legs of length 4 there are two cevians, of length 6 and 16, that divide the base into two integral parts.
